Earlier this month, the SCIAC released its 2020-2021 All-Academic Team. The SCIAC All-Academic Team recognizes student-athletes who have achieved a grade point average (GPA) of 3.40 or higher and must have completed one full calendar year at their current institution.
Chapman scored 259 student-athletes on the All-Academic Team – the highest number of student-athletes on the prestigious list since joining the conference in 2012.
Among the standouts on the list of Chapman’s student-athletes is senior Tracie Okumura. Tracie has maintained a perfect 4.00 GPA in her Biochemistry and Molecular Biology double major in the Schmid College of Science and Technology. On top of that, Tracie earned All-SCIAC honors for her work on the diamond in the 2021 season.
Tracie had a breakout season at the plate, getting at least one hit in 18 of her 22 games this season. She hit .414 through the shortened season with six doubles, a triple and nine RBIs. She also ranked second in the SCIAC with a career-best nine stolen bases and was never caught stealing.
With her perfect GPA and stellar performance on the field, Tracie exemplifies what it means to be a student-athlete at Chapman. We cannot wait to see her in the 2022 season!
